Selection Reminder: Bacon! The Experience at Say It Loud




Saturday, Oct. 15Bacon! The Experience

Meat candy. Fried crack. Sir Francis Awesome. Bacon has been called many things, and in the last five years, it’s become the trendy food additive, finding its way into everything from chocolate to mayonnaise to soda – but until now it hasn’t been called art. Peripatetic Orlando artist Doug Rhodehamel, whose work always elevates the mundane to sublimity, has been working on this cure for vegetarianism for weeks – he even stopped by the OW offices bearing a pound of perfectly grilled bacon about a month ago, enticing members of every department to take a meat-and-greet break. This evening at Julio Lima’s bright-orange studio promises baconiferous treats for every sense: a forest of bacon strips, cocktails of bacon-infused vodka, sizzling sounds, porky aromas and of course a load of different oinky treats to sample. Pig out with your rig out. – Jessica Bryce Young (7-11 p.m. at Say It Loud, 1121 N. Mills Ave.; $5)
